Course content

The legal and regulatory infrastructure and fundamental theoretical concepts underpinning global finance have undergone fundamental rethinking since 2008.

Recent reforms try to identify the appropriate means to make global financial markets safe again, eliminating the need for future bank bail-outs. As a result, practising in this area has become more challenging for lawyers, bankers, accountants, and regulators. The pursuit of a successful career in today’s global markets requires an extensive and in-depth understanding of complex and sophisticated global and domestic finance regulations, of the law and practice of international banking, and of the law and practice of corporate finance. In addition it requires a solid understanding of economic theories supporting the operation of global finance.

A degree in International Banking Law & Finance has become an essential requirement for those who wish to work in the legal, accounting and banking industries, as well as those who aspire to a successful career with regulatory authorities, central banks, and other public sector and international organisations.

This highly specialised programme is aimed at future leaders in the field of banking law and finance.
